Hi, I’m Alyssa

Can I tell you a secret?

I used to feel like I was faking it.

every.

damn.

day.

Even though I…

  • Graduated in the top 3% of my university class
  • Won writing contest after writing contest 
  • Moved to France and taught English
  • Worked at Kinfolk Magazine
  • Got a top marketing job in Portland
  • Bought a house (me, a millennial!)
  • Gave it all up to earn an MFA in London
  • Worked with my dream theatre company, Wise Children
  • Performed my own one-woman show in London

All these accomplishments were what I thought would make my life worthwhile, but every time I achieved a new one, I was just as lonely and scared and miserable as ever.

I’d also left Mormonism, a super high-demand religion, and even though I knew that was the best decision I could have made, I was completely lost — my entire community, worldview, and life purpose were suddenly just…gone.

Any of this sounding familiar to you?

It wasn’t until I started doing some real deep work on myself that I started being consistently happy—even if life wasn’t perfect, and even if I hadn’t “achieved” something recently, and even if I still didn’t know the meaning of life.

And you know what? It’s awesome.

But it can’t just be for me. So I’m taking all the tools and magic I’ve learned (you should see the mountains of books around my room) and pouring them into my courses and coaching and programs here.

For me, creativity, spirituality, and happiness are super intertwined. So you’ll find that my writing courses have you getting in touch with intuition, and my coaching programs might just spark your dormant creativity. 

(This is pretty much me)

If you’ve read this far, don’t you think we’re meant to be?

I send out a monthly newsletter with the books I’ve read that month, and the occasional choice gif or cute cat photo, and I looove getting messages back.
